It seems, sometimes, like the Republicans who aren't closet gays are strongly masochistic.

Or both.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Re: Iraq Vote in the House

I like the way my Democratic Congress critter put it. "I do not support the war, but by voting for this bill I am showing a lack of support for the military members who are fighting it (his area has three decent sized military bases). President Bush has come up with an option in response to our complaints and by voting for the bill we are essentially saying to the coach do something then booing when he does." Oh by the way he was one of the two Democrats who voted against the bill.

Re: Iraq Vote in the House

"Trying to eliminate Saddam, extending the ground war into an occupation of Iraq, . . . would have incurred incalculable human and political costs. . . . Had we gone the invasion route, the United States could conceivably still be an occupying power in a bitterly hostile land. It would have been a dramatically different -- and perhaps barren -- outcome."

George H. W. Bush

But, hey, what did he know?

Re: Iraq Vote in the House

Great story tonight on 60 Minutes about the Kurds and what they have accomplished since Sadaam was toppled. Amazing what a little homogeneity will do for peace. Their story is something very positive which has come out of this mess.
